    Cop should have called *chp on his cell instead.

    Would you stop for some stranger waving a gun at you and then some sort of badge from a car on a California road?

    No, I would have kept going and called the cops myself.

    I have (a badge, not a gun)! Back when I was younger my buddy and I were going to see Enter the Dragon in the Theater (yeah, that long ago - MP was probably in 3rd grade and it was before cell phones) and were driving down I-80 (6-lane highway). I smoked at the time and of course didn't have a whole lot of money so I was rolling and smoking Prince Albert in a can. Well, you know what those little ciggies look like right? I was driving along smoking my Prince Albert "pinner" and this beat up green car pulls along, honks the horn, and flashes a badge. We look at each other and say "Holy sheep ****!" and pull over. They (2 of them) searched us (pockets, down boots, etc. - we didn't know any better) and made me break open all my little cigs. :cry: They bantered back and forth between themselves "should we take them in...blah...blah. They "decided" to let us go. Was freaked out for quite a while. We always wondered later if they were real cops - they probably were - this happened on a busy freeway in broad daylight.

    P.S. - My buddy had his smoking materials and pipe too but it wasn't Prince Albert. It was in the only jacket pocket they didn't check. :wink:
